"UNITE HERE is a labor union that represents 270,000 working people across Canada and the United States. Our members work in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, transportation, and airport industries."
"Our membership is diverse. We are predominantly women and people of color, and we hail from all corners of the planet. Together, we are building a movement to enable people of all backgrounds to achieve greater equality and opportunity."
"The history of UNITE HERE includes more than a century in the textile and clothing industries. Many of our predecessor unions, including the International Ladies Garment Workers Union (ILGWU), the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America (ACWA), and the Textile Workers Union of America (TWUA), were on the forefront of the labor movement, establishing middle-class jobs for factory workers and fighting for immigrant and women’s rights."
